My son is a patriot from the inside. He gets teary eyes at the national anthem, makes sure everyone has their hat off when giving the pledge. Even stood up when the American flag was brought out for the Summer Olympics opening ceremony. He indeed loves the USA. So we thought he would appreciate the boy scouts, that was an understatement. He LOVES the scouts. I think I saw a tear come down his face when he saw his uniform. And with a good behavior day he earned the privilege to wear it tonight with his first goal of raising money for his scouting community. I am amazed that today he raised $450 (with the help of grandma and dads work :)
The other fascinating fact about my now eight year old is that he is an entrepreneur at heart! He sells everything to everyone. At the age of 3 I lost him in our neighborhood, a small cul-de-sac but still very scary! I found him at the door step of a 90 year old neighbor selling a bowl of Cheetos for $50 bucks, a bargain! When our neighbor chuckled and said no, he dropped it down to 5! He is always coming up with something to sell or someway to make a dollar.
Tonight he went door to door in his very handsome uniform to sell popcorn. Can you imagine the look on our neighbors face when they opened it up and heard his speech, he gives it good too!
So look out your doors a scout may be coming to your neighborhood soon its popcorn time!
